I bought this mold to make truffles since the silicone would hold up well to long term use. It works very well and it is easy to get the chocolate out of them (long as the chocolate is tempered to begin with, which is necessary for any chocolate mold). I even tried some very thin shelled ones and they came out great. My two complaints are 1) the color since it does, as another reviewer said, make it difficult to see if the entire surface is covered when making shells for the truffles and 2) that the mold is too deep for me. I like truffles that fit easily in the mouth and are not too big so as to required chewing immediately. I tried to make them shorter in the molds and it turned out ok but not as good as using a shorter mold. Overall the product is good quality and easy to use/wash.

I have bought 3 different shapes so far (Imperial, Vertigo and Praline) and love them all. I use the Lipper International Silicone Pastry Brush to paint the shells, freeze until hard, pipe the filling, freeze, then paint the bottom with chocolate and freeze again. Very fast and easy to use. Love this product!

i used this to make raw homemade peanut butter cups and truffles. the mold worked perfectly with no bubbles. i like the cute little shape and that i can create healthier versions of traditionally store-bought, high sugar candies.

These molds are great, exactly what I was looking for, they are the real thing and arrived fast
and in the original silkomart packaging. unlike some 'silkomart' rip offs I received from China.
